A 19th century Russian cloisonne open salt cellar with exquisite enamel decorative details. The brightly colored botanical band in the center is framed between bands of blue dots. 4 rings of twisted silver wires separate the bands and outline the thick enamels.

The oval 84 kokoshnik mark with the "I A" (cyrillic I looks like a reversed N) was of the assayer Ivan A Andreyovich. The rectangular touchmark "I S" (cyrillic reversed N & C) belongs to P F Sazikov, from the well known St Petersburg Sazikov silversmith family dating from the 18th century. The exquisite workmanship here is readily seen.

1 1/2" diameter, excellent condition. An antique Russian jewel.
